Facebook is trying to become a bit more like the real world.
The company on Wednesday introduced a feature that allows users to interact with small groups of people, like their family, high school friends or colleagues.
The move is an effort to address a longstanding problem: Facebook friends often span a broad range of relationships that include relatives, classmates, casual professional acquaintances or jogging partners -- and not everyone wants all of them to see his or her information.
